Hello everyone

Greetings,

I made an initial post on here back in 2012 but I have been off the grid for quite sometime so I figured I would post again. I am a USAR Drill Sergeant serving out of FT Benning. I spent my first 6 years in the ARNG as an Infantry Scout, instructor and S3 NCO. I currently live in South Carolina and I am contemplating dropping my packet but would have to repay my bonus back.

I just started the 10-week THOR3 program yesterday and will let you know of the progress for future applicants to the program.

Thanks to those who post information that is critical in the determination factor for myself and other hopefuls out there.

I am a 21 year old studying history and philosophy at UCLA while in the reserves as a PSYOP guy. I'm going to OCS after graduation and looking to commission as an infantry officer than head to SFAS when the opportunity arises. I'm on here just looking to learn as much as I can and get tips I couldn't find anywhere else.

Hello

Found this site a few years ago while doing some online research. Lots of good info on many things here and I enjoy reading all of the comments.
Im over 50 so will not be testing or attempting any type of high speed anything. Did 20 in the USMC did some interesting things, but nothing wild. Well into my second career and trying hard to use my brain more and body less, it saves on medical bills.

Hi, I'm Titania, I'm 19 and I'm interested in joining the US special operation forces. I believe it's my true calling and I'm training to be a combat swimmer.

I joined since this place is a great resource for aspiring operators and I want to learn as much as possible.

I'm from the Bay Area, a current 88A Transportation Officer in the Reserve.

Going to lurk here and soak up useful information and motivation while training for selection in the next couple years.

Currently focused on my 25m target and 50m target but checking out what lies beyond...

Lived in Brazil and taught English, fluent in Brazilian Portuguese. 2/2 on the DLPT. I studied French in college for 4 years and studied abroad, now I just need to regain those language skills.

Good evening! I myself have no military service, even though my grandfather, dad and son have all served or are serving. My dad and I have stumbled upon this great site as we sit here together searching Special Forces memorabilia. My dad, who is 75 years old, served with 46th in Thailand during the late 60s. He got a smile looking at posts from the deactivated groups as he is now in the fight for his life with a recent diagnosis of lung cancer and has opted to skip chemotherapy. I will probobly never have much to add to this site, but will definately keep lurking. Thanks for the great work on this forum and God bless all yall do!
Respectfully

Advice is easy
Pay attention to what your Commanders intent is, Take advice from your NCO's,
when in charge be in charge, be on time, and finally take your lumps if you screw up.
Good luck

Hi all,

My name is Alex, I am 25, and I am here to read and learn as much as possible. Serving in the armed forces has been a goal of mine since I was young, but that goal was unfortunately delayed due to a multitude of circumstances. I'm not getting any younger, and am eager to forge a new path in my life with hard working and honorable people - personality traits not often found in my current industry.

Thanks very much for accepting civilians like myself onto this forum.

Good evening everyone.

My name is Michael and I currently live in Reading, Pennsylvania and formerly from Baltimore, Maryland not far from the 20th SFG Detachment in Glen Arm. I have been reading the forums for many years. While I was a Maryland State Trooper it provided me a lot of helpful tips to improve my running, pushups, sit-ups, and overall fitness level. I am now looking into joining the Guard and pushing for an 18X/Rep 63 Contract to serve with the Glen Arm Detachment if selected. I appreciate everyone's time and am glad to be here.

Michael
